It is normal.

1 is the switch number (kinda silly that it's there, since there is only one switch), and ON is the switch position indicator.

I was poking around inside of mine earlier today and I'd say this is spot on, it's a great all-in-one.
A drop in revision (with say, onboard tridents) would be very cool

Default Help with a Buffalo 32s channel not working

One channel of my Buf32s is not working.

I've tested the outputs (both channels) with an oscilloscope. I have used a CD track with a 1kHz signal and one channel shows the signal ok, as it should be. However the other channel shows no AC signal, instead appear 13.8Vdc between + and GND and -7.9Vdc between - and gnd.

Seems clear that the analog part of the buff32 is failing . Could someone please help me?
Since the scheme is not available I guess Brian and/or Russ would know with more certainty that may be failing.

The configuration of the dac is very simple. I use spdif input and SE output (signal taken from + and gnd) and two Placid BP one per channel (+/-15V and 200mA supply current configuration) and one Placid for Digital (5.20V and 200mA supply current configuration) . Attached is a pic of the dac.

That's a nice clean DAC. Good work. My suspicion is that an op-amp has gone bad. I am out of town at the moment, but when I get back I will try to help you identify which one by giving you some test points.

Cheers!
Russ

First thing to do is to measure at the outputs of each opamp.

Ok. I can see two OPA1632 one LM4562 and one LME49710. Do you mean the output of all these opamps?
